Galapagos Islands

I was a volunteer with Love Volunteers on the Galapagos from April 24 to May 4, 2012, and this was really the best trip I have ever taken for two main reasons. First, the people involved were all extremely friendly, helpful, and informative. This applies to the staff with Love Volunteers as well as the staff and other volunteers we met at our placement on the Galapagos. If you enjoy meeting and working with good people, as well as learning a lot about the people and the islands themselves, this is definitely an opportunity I highly recommend. Second, the scenery and wildlife on the Galapagos islands are fascinating and beautiful. Literally every day had me saying "Wow" out loud to something I was seeing or experiencing. It's an absolutely beautiful and unique place to explore, and doing so as a volunteer offers some opportunities that you would not ordinarily get to experience as a regular tourist to the islands.I didn't know which photo to post: I could have chosen one showing the great people I worked with, one showing us doing some of the fun and unique work at the station, one with some of the amazing wildlife we saw... but I chose this photo taken on Isabela island during one of our weekend excursions... probably the most beautiful place I've ever visited, a true must-see place on Earth.
